Donations to Jazz Forum Arts
We welcome all contributions to Jazz Forum Arts to support our general programming – currently the free summer concert series and the Jazz Forum club offerings. Whether you can participate in our Charter Donor Campaign or make a more modest contribution, we are grateful that you are supporting our work to advance the awareness and experience of jazz in Westchester and the New York metropolitan area.
The Jazz Forum club is a program of Jazz Forum Arts, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit arts presenting organization. All contributions to either entity are tax deductible. If you would like additional information, please email Ellen Prior, Associate Director at email@example.com or call (914)-631-1000
Charter Donor Campaign
As a Charter Donor, you will be a supporting partner of Jazz Forum Arts in launching the first (and only) dedicated jazz club in Westchester. You have the opportunity to be celebrated for the life of the club as part of the team that made this non-profit venture possible. You will be instrumental in giving Westchester residents and visitors fine music, great food and drink, and a warm and welcoming “place to be.” You will be investing in something you care deeply about and be able to call the Jazz Forum your home for art and community.
Charter Donors will be separately recognized, in perpetuity, as members of the core group of folks who were instrumental in starting the Jazz Forum.
At the Champion level ($10,000 contribution), the benefits are:
• Sole sponsorship of a weekend of performances (of your choice) from the first year roster. This will be recognized in all our print and social media publicity in coordination with you.
• Host to 20 friends during that weekend (waived cover charges)
• Waived cover charges for six people for all events during the first year
At the Benefactor level ($5,000 contribution):
